If you haven't heard her yet---where have you been? She is a native of Nigeria but relocated to Germany about five years ago. This woman has soul! Any fans of Lauryn Hill, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, etc. will love her! http://bit.ly/da0xxE

The hype is still building and everyone is ecstatic about the new collaboration between James Mercer and Brian Burton (Danger Mouse). It's finally been announced that the album comes out on 3.09.2010 and the release is self-titled Broken Bells.
For a limited time they are giving a free download for The High Road. This track is phenomenal! I'd love to get your feedback on this single. Get excited and check it out!
If you haven't heard of The Clipse .... YOU NEED TO! I saw them play in New York a few months back and they blew me away. The new record "Til The Casket Drops" just came out a few weeks ago and I've yet to listen to much else. Here are some videos---they collaborate with so much talent! Let me know your thoughts and do yourself a favor---check out this record!
With the release of his new record, "Battle Studies" out this Tuesday, November 17th...John has been busy reaching out to audiences in almost every medium. The anticipation for the album is very, very great and I can be near certain that fans (as well as new listeners) will not be disappointed.
Interestingly, in an interview with Rolling Stone, John had this to say about "Who Say's" the first single. "The song’s first lyric, 'Who says you can’t get stoned?' was not about weed but, being “in control of the pleasure in your life.” In the same interview, John goes on to talk about the idea of this record being a battle (given the title of the album) in that it goes from a bright and rather sunny scape to a dark and dreary battle field. This visual sets up the record for much anticipation! Be sure to check it out!
ALSO| The John Mayer camp has set up a really cool interactive video for "Heartbreak Warfare". You can use your webcam to alter the 3D video. http://johnmayer.com/ar/#/Home
New video from The Temper Trap! If you haven't heard them, you need to! They're an incredible band from Australia--This video was the featured track on 500 Days of Summer too! I had the privilege of seeing them play in New York last week and they sound just as amazing live as they do on the record. Seriously do yourself a favor--check out the video, buy their record and enjoy it!
